Criss Library will be undergoing a limited remodel that will last through approximately Mid-November. Remodeling will occur on the 1st and 2nd floor. When all the noise is finished and the dust settled Criss Library will have three new spaces for patrons to enjoy. Archives & Special Collections will have an updated space on first floor. Second floor will be home to a New Classroom and the expanded Creative Production Lab. The library will be open during construction, so please pardon this temporary inconvenience.
